Avalon: 133k of Reliability & Value
By Isoka on
Vehicle
1996 Toyota Avalon XL 4dr Sedan
Review
I've driven my Avalon for six years after buying it used, driving on a combination of high speed freeway and beat up lousy DC streets. The car is bulletproof. No mechanical problems at 133,000 miles. Never replaced timing belt. People get in the car, cross their legs in the back seat, and ask, "what is this car??" Used two different Toyota dealers over this time, but neither was worth a damn. Luckily the cars don't break, so you don't have to see them much.
Favorite Features
Reliability. Great family car. Great value, no need to pay for Lexus until you feel like paying for even more fun and performance. Smart match of gearing to 3.0 V6 means great punchy acceleration and good fuel economy. Huge interior and trunk.
Suggested Improvements
Wind noise is a bit excessive for what is otherwise near luxury car. Not a tight suspension, this is really a cloud car with reliability that kicks butt on US cloud cars. Exterior paint may be a bit soft.
